Does baseball need instant replay?
Pete Kozma almost wasn't the goat of Game 1, but after a quick conference, umpires ruled that Dustin Pedroia was safe due to Kozma bobbling the ball during a potential double play. The Red Sox ended up with the bases loaded and one out, and Mike Napoli cleared the bases with a double. Calls like this aren't usually overturned in the World Series, but even the most adamant booer of umpires would have to admit the officials did well in this situation: they quickly and efficiently overturned an incorrect call in a high-pressure situation. They won't be left so alone with the expansion of instant replay, but at this point, do they really need it?
